Everything in FullScreen mode I have a ati video driver installed. The fps is about half of what I get on windows, but still plenty fast. remember to compile wine with the patch and use the directions for compiling wine per the directions for your linux distribution.
What does not
windowed mode doesnt display right. You can run in a wine window (not continuum window mode).. that is run continnum in full screen mode in a wine window (1280 * 1024) and you get the same effect.
What was not tested
**Be sure to run in 16 or 32 bit mode.. or some things may not display. **Be sure to run Continuum under xp or win2000/2003... win 98 will give "unsupported vxd" error. Ubuntu-64 may not compile everything correctly. SUSE-64 DID compile everything.

Continuum is freeware and can be downloaded from http://getcontinuum.com/
Continuum normally works by creating another process of itself with the inability to use OpenProcess, as a anticheat measure.
Wine doesn't emulate the ability to use these permission flags, so it endlessly loops. With the following patch to the Wine source, it checks for this, and allows Continuum to run.
To apply the patch to wine:
Copy and paste the text below into a file called continuum.patch:
And apply the patch with:
patch -p 1 < continuum.patch
Then go ahead and compile wine.
That's all that needs to be done. =) Many thanks go out to the wiki at wiki.minegoboom.com.
For the HOWTO patch, it has not been tested thouroughly, or at all, and could cause regressions for other programs. Please use at your own risk.
